About this show

Merrimack Repertory Theatre presents Hecht & MacArthur's The Front Page. It's Chicago in the roaring 20?s. The City Hall Press Room is the center of the known world. Newspaper men, poker, politics and graft. Sound familiar? A hard-boiled star reporter, a managing editor who would double-cross his own mother for a story and a murderer who has just escaped from prison, all tumble together in one of the funniest and most exciting of all American plays. A whiz-bang symphony of entrances, exits and surprises, this fast and furious comedy explores power, greed and corruption.
